All free, all year: Downtown Brooklyn Presents 2017 kicks off April 22
You live and work in one of the fastest growing Downtowns in America. We’re throwing events all year long so you can get to know your neighborhood - and your neighbors.
The Downtown Brooklyn Presents line-up of events includes outdoor movie screenings, concerts, festivals, pop-up market happy hours, fitness classes, dance parties and ping pong tournaments throughout our public plazas. On Saturday, April 22nd, we’ll kick things off with the first of our monthly BK Block Parties on Albee Square. Come on out for live music, face-painting, double-dutch-ing and more from 11am – 1pm.
The world-famous BAM R&B Festival is set for Thursdays at lunchtime again this year, plus be on the lookout for yoga, fitness classes, salsa and happy hours throughout the summer months.
For the first time - partnering with Forest City Ratner Companies – we’ve put together a fresh slate of free events and activities to take place right in MetroTech Commons. From our ping pong tournaments and “popup market” happy hours, to our Movies @ MetroTech animal-themed movie nights, Downtown’s denizens will find plenty of reasons to enjoy the Commons after the sun goes down.
